The morning is gray and overcast. I see a sliver of light just above the horizon as I drive east. I head for the Blue Ridge Parkway drinking a hot cup of Tazo Chai Tea . A combo of the tea and subtle light upon a grandiose landscape proves to be a pleasant morning attitude adjuster. I spent about 20 minutes shooting--just enough time for my hands to remember the ache and sting of winter. Got to remember to put the gloves in the Jeep. My goal for the day is to take lots of deep breaths.
